A British newspaper has published a photo of United States President Donald Trump and President Rodrigo Duterte holding hands with the title, “Hand in hand with a killer.”

The Independent published the photo of the two leaders Tuesday (November 14) on its front page.

The photo was taken during the first day of the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit and Related Meetings in Manila, when Trump and leaders of ASEAN states and dialogue partners did the “ASEAN handshake” with Duterte.

Duterte has drawn international criticism over the government’s bloody war on drugs.

He, however, has slammed foreign critics, saying they should not meddle in the Philippines’ internal matters.

Trump was in the country from November 12 to 14 for the 31st ASEAN Summit and Related Meetings as a dialogue partner.

He left Tuesday afternoon (November 14) without attending the East Asia Summit, which he was widely expected to take part in.
